Belize is a living memory for very few people here; Stella is one of them. Fortunately no hurricanes struck while she was there on some sort of anthropological project about a decade ago.

While the wind speed got up to 80mph, it moved through fairly quickly. Belize and the Yucatan have been the target of choice for tropical events lately.
